Album Notes
Oakland's up and coming musicians Ryan Scott Long and Michael J.C. Booker have been pursuing their dreams of music since birth. These two met in a bathroom at Chabot College (don't get the wrong idea). Michael told Ryan about a performance he was doing and Ryan loved it. At the time Ryan was in a project called S.K.O.P.E (Some Kind of Psychedelic Experience) with Ben Wallace-Ailsworth (bassist and drummer). Ryan told Ben "We gotta hook up with this guy, he's amazing" after seeing Booker play.
S.K.O.P.E then recruited Booker and went on to play as trio until the fall of 2012 as Ben went off to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Booker and Long have formed their own project as a duo playing mainly improvised music and calling their genre "Confusion Fusion" with experimental jazz, psychedelic, funk and Avant-Garde elements. This is their first record as they will be releasing "The Chance" on July 5th of 2013. The duo mixed the record with Grammy Award Winning engineer Oz Fritz (Primus, Tom Waits, Bob Marley) at Prairie Sun Recording in Cotati, CA. "Super Genius" Grammy Nominated Myles Boisen (John Zorn, Fred Firth) mastered their record at Headless Buddha Mastering Lab in Oakland, CA.
Booker and Long enjoy making both their shows and their records feel like an experience that people can resonate with by being able to feel the music and sounds in their hearts and souls.
